    Horror Icon Tod Slaughter Signed Photo. Halloween comes early for vintage horror fans: Tod Slaughter was an actor who seemed hell-bent on living up to his last name -- notably as Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. The gloriously over-the-top actor, hailed as "The Last of the British Barnstormers," played for decades onstage as the mad-for-revenge Todd (a barber who cut the throats of his victims, who later become meat pies), also starring in a 1936 British film version. His Victorian acting style of mad, cackling villainy won him a special niche in horror cinema, and this is a superb b&w 8" x 10" photo of the "Sweeney Todd" actor, inscribed and signed by him in black ink, and showing him in his study at peace with the world (and at odds with his professional image). Signed photos of this full-blooded horror star are rare indeed, and this one comes in Very Fine to Excellent condition with mild wear. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
